BRAZIL'S ELECTRONIC TOLL COLLECTION MIGRATION STRATEGY: CHALLENGES AND ACHIEVEMENTS

The Brazilian Toll Road Association and its members have commissioned Parsons Brinckerhoff to develop a migration plan to adopt and implement a Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) for Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) applications both for the near and long terms. The objective is to ensure that existing and planned DSRC installations (most notably electronic toll collection systems) can work together to provide seamless travel throughout Brazil and lay a strong foundation for the deployment of additional interoperable ITS and other travel-related applications in the future. This paper presents a model for other nations to use in developing their own migration strategies to achieve interoperability. In addition, it addresses some key institutional issues related to migration and suggests the creation of new institutions to assist in fostering and supporting standardization.
